This is an elective type of surgery that is focused mainly on enhancing aesthetics of any part of the body. This should not be mistaken for plastic surgery which is mainly to repair the defect and improve the functionality of any part of the body- cosmetic surgery is broader. Cosmetic surgery can be performed to enhance symmetry and general appearance of the patient’s body even though those part of the body will function well without or with the surgical procedures.
Types of Cosmetic Surgery
There are different types of cosmetic surgery, but some are more commonly done. The top of the list of cosmetic surgery done globally are:
This is the Augmentation of the size, lifting, and reduction of the breast through surgical means. This procedure gives the patient’s saggy breast a firmer appearance and also used to enhance the size of the breast to the patient specifications through liposuction surgery and other related procedure.
Rhinoplasty, Chin, or Cheek Enhancement are some of the common surgeries performed on the face. The shape of the nose can be modified to the taste of the patient to give their desired facial look. This surgery has nothing to do with the functions of the chin, nose or cheek, but it’s just for aesthetic intent.
Patients that wish to ‘fight’ the ageing process will opt for a Facelift, Eyelid Lift, Neck Lift or Brow Lift to get reed of the wrinkles along those part of the face. The post-surgery appearance will definitely present the patient with a younger facial look.
This includes but not limited to Liposuction, Tummy Tuck, and Gynecomastia Treatment. The outcome of these procedures is flat tummy, reduction and redistricting of excess fat in the body. It improves the curves and shape of ladies and also serves as an easy getaway from body shaming.
